when i want to switch up my cardio i throw in some jump rope. I usually do it hiit style. I jump rope as hard as possible for a minute, then rest for 30 to 45 seconds, then repeat. 15 to 20 of those and i'm spent
I don't do this for my family, my friends, women, accolades, pride, or ego. I do it for me and no one else, its just part of who I am.
